Pearl's father passed away a few months back, his mother is suffering from a life threatening disease... Rape charges of a 5yr old have been put on Pearl for which there is no bail under the POSCO act.. now who will fight the case for him... who will hire a lawyer for him and look into all intricacies..,” she wrote.
